  1. From what I've been led to believe, you should accept the breakfast and then if something else comes up, or if you feel that Davies is not going to work out, you just call them and cancel (as soon as you know, of course)
  2. I know you state that you're 'high financial need' but I am unsure if any of the student loan programs, bursary programs, etc would agree. If you're working full time, I'm assuming you make a salary. If that salary is decent, bursary's will be hard to obtain since you'll have to explain why you didn't save up to (atleast partially) fund your own way through law school. I think that you should apply and, if not awarded a scholarship, apply for a student loan and a PSLOC. I know people in my program who owe 70k+ from their undergrad, etc- without having a hefty outstanding loan, you're already lower financial need than some of your peers.
  3. Legal research and writing on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings either 10-1130 or 1130-1 Crim/property/contract/constitutional- Monday-Thursday in the afternoons (like 2-430). 2 sections have 1 night class (6-830) instead of all afternoons. Indigenous legal traditions from 9-12 Friday mornings.
  4. He is literally asking for advice. I am stating my advice. I literally said I hope he gets a job. ????????????
  5. Dude, I really hope you get a job. You've heard it enough on this forum but you need to chill a bit. I think you should answer with the truth and ask questions that really interest you. It's a stressful process but overthinking minor details will probably work against you on interview day.
  6. Does anyone have any information about the compensation for articling in Southern Ontario? I am mostly interested in Windsor. I am hoping to be able to step away from the OCI/Toronto process and wait to apply for articling in Windsor but am having a hard time weighing options with such little information available. Generally, is it harder to get one of the few Windsor positions?
  7. You should wait. You won't get a benefit from submitting early and if you wait you can confirm that they actually did submit the LOR. It's better to wait just to ensure they submit it properly/it shows up on your OLSAS app.
  8. Are these firms coming to your school or conducting interviews over skype?
  9. What school do you attend? I assumed that all the firms had a full day planned (20 OCIs)
  10. Yeah, the grades are all the same! I just assumed that an unofficial would be okay since a pdf scan of an official one could just as easily be altered. it was definitely a mistake on my part, but I'm hoping it doesn't hurt my applications too much. I ended up sending a scanned pdf of my official grad and law transcripts to each recruiter through email just to be sure. Some have responded, some have not.
  11. Despite all the time I spent putting my OCI applications together, I appear to have made a pretty serious mistake. I included copies of my unofficial transcripts rather than requesting and scanning official copies. Unfortunately, I am unable to quickly obtain my undergrad transcripts (since they would have to be sent from another province) but I am picking up my graduate and law school transcripts this afternoon (as soon as the registrars office opens at 1pm) I'm looking for some advice. I know I was naive to assume that it didn't matter whether the transcripts were official or non-official but this assumption was based on my belief that official copies were only wanted if an applicant is successful. Since it would be just as easy to change a scanned image (and why would anyone lie at this stage anyway?). My unofficial transcripts contain my final grades, and show that I downloaded the grades/transcripts a week ago. My grades are good and I don't want this one element to be my downfall. I'm mostly wondering how to proceed. My applications have all been reviewed on ViRecruit- I can't easily make the change. Should I email each firm individually with a PDF of my official transcripts? Or wait for them to request? (1 has already, which is why the issue was brought to my attention)
  12. I agree with Toad- it's super strange. All your writing should be timestamped, similar to using google docs. It's extra strange that you're being accused for each exam. You should ask for specifics as to why they think you cheated (ie. is there actually a time stamp you are unaware of, you wrote more than normally possible etc) At my school (UWindsor) we use exam soft. My computer shut down during an exam and when I started it back up examsoft opened asking if I'd like to continue my writing, with a time stamp of when I last typed. When submitting on examsoft, a big green check would appear and examsoft would send an automated email confirming receipt. Unless Exam4 is completely different, I imagine it would be difficult to make a mistake submitting every single exam.
